In a bid to get acquainted to the culture and tradition of the people of Cross River,the Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria contestants paid a courtesy visit to Senator Ita Giwa.

Upon arrival, the girls were received with open arms as the senator gladly took them round her home. After settling in, she spoke on the importance of being confident as a woman while also telling them the attributes of a Calabar woman and of course the ladies chuckled when they were told about the fattening room.

After the chit chat, the contestants were treated to a sumptuous meal. It might also interest you to know that Senator Ita Giwa is the leader of one of the major carnival bands, the Seagull Mas Band.
